We all have our ups and downs. The trick is to ride the ups as long as you can and, when you are down, do everything you can to get back up. After all, the view is much better when you are up.
We all have reasons that we find ourselves down and out at times. Almost none of these are connected to what we have done or not done. I know; you should hear some of mine.
We need to not only take ownership of where we are, we also need to take action. Why we are in an unfavorable position is less important than what we are doing to get back to where we belong.
If you work hard at something and do well, you probably belong in the upper section. Yet remember, the most significant contributor to your success is the planning and hard work you put into doing the job right.
What are you working hard at and doing right?
